He made his professional debut in June 1941, in Honolulu, where he was to fight the majority of his bouts. He defeated Paul Francis by a knockout in the second round.He fought his first forty bouts in Honolulu, before travelling to Glasgow, in Scotland in July 1947, for a title fight against Jackie Paterson, the World flyweight champion. Unfortunately, Paterson was unable to make the weight, and indeed collapsed at the weigh-in. The result was that Paterson was stripped of his World title, and a non-title fight was arranged between Marino and Rinty Monaghan of Northern Ireland. Marino won the bout when Monaghan was disqualified in the ninth round.
